|Martin Del Litto- Life Set [Treetrunk 168] - Martin Del Litto|
"This is a solo improvised session by Martin Del Litto, recorded at Pou de la Figuera (Barcelona) on July 2011. The idea was to emulate organic ambients generated with electronic resource. Basically, I used a synthesizer and some amplified objects.... I tried to make a kind of trip through different landscapes and emotions...."-- Martin Del Litto, 2011

|Mystified - Dance Like Branches [wh217] - Mystified|
The result of a creative challenge, this work uses a variety of acoustic instruments and sound sources to craft rhythms and ambient textures. "Dance Like Branches" was a response to an artistic challenge by C.P. McDill for mystified to compose in an older style, and without using certain tools. All sounds were created by hand in the studio from instruments played by Thomas, with the exception of the vocal samples...

Amazed we were by the Hekte Zaren / Norss split on Norss Platen called Hellemond! What were we hearing here? The new Diamanda Galas?! That’s as close a description we could come up with. AmortE is the alter ego of Hekte Zaren and this is her first release on Okkulth Records. The second one is coming soon and something tells us, there will be a third, maybe a fourth, hell, why not a fifth?! AmortE is a hellish poet, the tongue of evil, death’s singer...

It has been expressed on many occasions that TT releases have a bit of a science-fiction bent, and we like our sci-fi heavy on the science. Enter Sunmoon with "Protostar" and you have a mystical, cosmic ambient masterpiece. The sounds are much like the swirling of gasses and matter as a star is formed or destroyed. As you listen you can feel yourself travelling through clouds of vaporized elements and expanding particles...

The conception was Seetyca's, and mystified added a few soundloops and other elements. Final mixing was by Artin Mucht. The result is stark, cold, and beautiful-- Treetrunk hopes you enjoy it.

Mystified has expanded the original Bone Drones trilogy into new territory thanks to the acquisition of a new instrument. A recently invented trombone called the Jiggs pBone has revolutionized the world of "brass" instruments. Although it is constructed of plastic, it is capable of the rich tones and volume of its traditional metallic cousin. It is in its lighter weight and less brassy overtones that new possibilities occur, and thusly inspired, Thomas Park of Mystified has undertaken to begin a...

Apathy set in. The foundations and structures the greatness had been built on were ignored, forgotten, and eroded...

Mystified, ever experimenting and innovating, has created a collection of drone-ambient works derived entirely from trombone sounds. "For each of these 5 pieces I played a long note on the trombone, trying hard to get a good tone, and holding the note as long as I could. I then processed the notes. The software I used had a "randomize" feature, and I used that a lot for the processing. Each song you hear is a single note on a real trombone processed randomly, then re-composed in an editing progr...

McDill and is a sub-project of Saluki Regicide in ways that are difficult to define. Is it a variant personality, a mutation, a doppelganger, or an entirely new form of life? Still finding its way, perhaps we shall see it mature into its own person, though we are aware that the apple seldom falls far from the tree.....
